Ever-Changing Mystery Box


I would like to start a new game after the holidays. It’s called the Ever-Changing Mystery Box. If there enough interest we will start in mid Jan. I will obtain a Flat Rate Priority Mail Box and fill it with seed trades. There will be a few annuals, mostly perennials, a few herbs and couple of trees and shrubs. There will be multiple trades of each. Each trade will be in a small Z-Loc bag marked with the following Information:
1. Common Name
2. Botanical Name
3. Quantity of trade [i.e. 1 tsp, 1 Cone, ½ pod, 10 seeds, etc.]
4. Provider’s Forum Name
5. Hardiness Zone

A week before we start I will post a new thread called Ever-Changing Mystery Box, Who’s IN. Anyone wishing to participate will reply ‘I’M in’. In about a week’s time I will send the box to the first person who replied to the thread. When you receive the box go back to thread and PM the next person after your name; tell them you have the box and have PM you their address. Try to turn the box around as fast as possible; about 3 to 4 days would be ideal.
When you have the box select as many trades as you want but limit them to one trade per species. Replace the ones took with trade packet of your own. Try your to replace annuals with annuals, perennials with perennials, etc. Do the best you can. I will place an inventory sheet in the box. Scratch off each item you removed and add each item you added. If you’re the last name on the list when we close it down, e-mail the box back to me.
After the game is over, I will analyze the inventory list and provide any players who want it, the demographics of this game. Well are there any questions? Is It a good idea or not? Will we have enough players to play?

Hi,
Sorry I caused some confusion. It was originally posted in the Forum Ohio and called "Ever Changing Mystery Box, Who's In?"

Sorry again about the confusion.
Bill
